God Bless America!

Wine food pairing on this special Independence Day ..... always a time for good food with great friends and family. We plan on visiting some friends for a traditional BBQ. What could be better for the fourth?

My contribution will be the "deviled" eggs .... my special secret? Promise you won't tell anyone? OK......

Whip the hard boiled yolk with a bit of miracle whip light, pickled relish, Janes "crazy mixed up" salt, paprika and a touch of mustard. I take a zip lock bag, cut a small hole in one corner and "pipe" the mixture back into the egg white shell. Top with a small slice of jalapeno pepper and a sprinkle of paprika and we are good to go to the party!

Of course, I will bring a spot of wine along also ... I think I will go with the Bohemian Highway Chardonnay ... with its pear and apple flavors and a touch of citrus I think it will be the perfect pairing for all the tasty BBQ ahead.

I'm excited and of course I will take pictures to share, so stay turned for the party photos!

Lest we not forget .... we do need to pause for a moment in our fourth of July celebrations to give thanks for all the men and women who gave so much for us so we can live in this land of the free and the home of the brave.

God Bless America!
